QUARTZ.dll is part of MicroSoft's DirectX module. This article might prove useful: http://pcsupport.about.com/od/findbyerrormessage/a/quartz-dll-not-found-missing-error.htm
I still have this problem, unfortunately... I can't open Premiere Elements 11 because this error keeps preventing the program. The program will start to load in the purple box, and the error box will come up, saying it is a "Bad Image" and there's a problem with the system32\QUARTZ.dll file. I can't get past that step in opening Premiere Elements 11.
I have followed most the directions on the above article, and connected articles related to it.
I installed updated drivers and Bios, even though they were the same as what my laptop already had. I also downloaded the latest version of DirectX and that didn't change anything either. I tried to extract just the QUARTZ.dll file from it, but never was given an option to chose where to save the download or pull files out from it.
Can someone please share any suggestions to battle this problem? I can't use my Premiere Elements program, which is so frustrating. Everything else on the computer is working normally.
Thanks for your ideas and suggestions.
